Black ASL - Extremely interesting video talking about how black ASL is similar to AAVE (African American Vernacular English). And I’m just like…ummmm, hell yes! Finally I can learn how to sign the same way I speak. 

oooh, fun fact: did you know, before the civil rights movement, even the deaf schools were segregated? so black and white deaf children were not allowed to interact with each other, and that basically started black ASL. (interessssttiiiinggggg!!!!)

anyways, i’ve had a really bad day, and this just made me a bit too excited.

this is so awesome too bc i don’t even know ASL but i can see the movements of our shit, our facial expressions, etc.
